What are some psychological things that people don’t know about attraction?

It can be said that beauty is different from person to person.
However, according to some studies, this statement is not entirely correct.
Because psychologically speaking, although personal preferences play an
important role, there are several aspects of the attractiveness criteria are
widely accepted. Through this in-depth discussion of this topic, you may be
able to understand why we find someone more attractive.

1.    Waist
circumference ratio

Similarly,
many men will say that they like girls with good figure, or girls with S-shaped
curves and so on. Indeed, the waist to hip ratio has long been considered one
of the most important features of a woman’s appearance. A study in the National
Library of medicine shows that women with lower WHR are more attractive to men.
Generally, the smaller the ratio of waist to hip, the healthier a person is.

2.    Average
appearance

Indeed,
almost everyone says that they like handsome men and beautiful women, and we
seem to prefer unusual or unique faces. However, according to the experiments
described in the Book Principles of social psychology, the opposite is true.

The
researchers showed college students pictures of men’s and women’s faces and
found that people preferred common faces, which is explained by the fact that
these faces are more similar to the people we often see, so they need to be
more familiar with us.

3.    Diet
preference

       

A study in
the world academic journal elswell suggests that food preferences actually make
men more attractive to women. Recently, the smell of men who eat fruits and
vegetables is thought to be more popular than men who eat mainly bread and
pasta. More specifically, this is actually related to the effect of diet on
sweat. More fruits and vegetables intake, often bring more pleasant sweat.

4.    voice

Any personal
characteristics, in the eyes of others, may show some personality. Moreover,
most of the time, this kind of judgment occurs in the subconscious, even people
themselves have not found out. For example, people’s preference for sound.

Studies have
shown that women associate a male’s low voice with masculinity and maturity, so
they tend to think it’s more attractive.

5.    smell

As we have
mentioned above, eating fruits and vegetables can make men have more pleasant
smell for women. What about women?

In fact, the
smell of women can also affect their attractiveness to men. But there’s also a
special odor that’s based on the female reproductive hormones. Studies have
shown that women are more attractive to men during ovulation, when hormone
levels indicate their fertility.
